N64 team working on Banjo 360(News)

I would like Rare to buy the rights to james bond goldeneye so they can remake it for the Xbox 360 but bloody activision has the rights.

Good. This means this game i gonna be great. But tbh, i woulda bought it whatever team made it.

Do they realy need the James Bond rights to re-release a game that they made?

I think they would need the rights or they would be in a lot of trouble.
